Responsible Business - Let's take responsibility
Taking responsibility for the environment and local community has been an important part of the broader commitment of the Rezidor Hotel Group to sustainable development for many years. In 2001, this commitment was fortified and placed within the scope of a programme called Responsible Business (RB). Each hotel has a unique RB Action Plan covering areas such as community outreach, cultural heritage, employee and children’s rights, health and safety and environmental improvements.
The hotels are engaged with both local charity groups and the corporate international charity organisation supported by the Rezidor Hotel Group, the World Childhood Foundation. The mission of the foundation is to defend the rights of the child and promote better living conditions for vulnerable and exploited children all over the world.
RB activities and achievements of this hotel include:
Energy savings – Outfitting the underground parking garage and kitchens with motion detectors to turn off lights at times of low traffic
Environmentally friendly supplies – Use of detergents with natural ingredients and products bearing environmentally friendly labels like “Blue Angel” while maintaining high standards of cleanliness
Keeping the grounds tidy - Regular patrols by hotel apprentices of the driveway and sidewalks to remove litter
The paperless office – Reuse of copy paper and outsourcing of accounting, making the correspondence process completely digital
